User Impact: A small percentage of callers connecting to queues and IVRs may not hear the configured initial greeting, menu prompts, or hold music.

From our initial investigation into system logs, the errors for failed audio playback of prompts, greetings, or hold music for reported call scenarios are originating from the Microsoft Graph API which our system communicates with. We've opened a support ticket with the Microsoft Team and are awaiting a response from them on further root cause analysis.

Customers who are strongly affected by this issue should consider failing over to Microsoft Teams native call queues as a temporary measure.

Update - 7/21/2023 8:52 AM EST: Our team has escalated the severity of the Microsoft Support ticket and is awaiting a response from the Microsoft team.

Update - 7/21/2023 10:50 AM EST: A support rep assigned to the Microsoft Support ticket has confirmed that the ticket has been escalated for review by the Microsoft Engineering team.

Update - 7/24/2023 1:20 PM EST: Microsoft has issued a fix for the issue. Our telemetry is showing the issue is resolving.

Microsoft's RCA: We are not sure about the root cause since the URL is not showing on our server-side logs, which has been redacted for privacy reasons. But our best guess is that the URL was encoded during transportation which caused the format validation failure. We can consider adding more logs to double confirm that and then add decoding logic before URL validation.

User Impact: Some calls when answered in Teams client are not able to be transferred or placed on hold. The call appears as a meeting in the Teams active call window.

This is a Microsoft Teams issue. We are currently working with Microsoft to help them resolve the issue.

6/20 6:27PM EST Microsoft Update: We have determined that a code path utilized by Microsoft Teams used to identify one-on-one calls was blocked with a recent code change. This causes the service to believe all calls are in a group meeting, preventing the advanced calling options from being available. We've restored this code path.

2/21 4:54PM EST Microsoft Update: Root cause: A recent code change was preventing incoming calls from being categorized as one-on-one calls, which was intermittently preventing advanced calling options from appearing.
